Helping You Get The Medical Treatment You Need Following A Work Injury
If you have suffered a workplace injury, it is important to seek medical attention from a doctor who takes your injury as seriously as you do. Medical documentation of your injury plays a vital role in workers’ compensation claims, and lack of documentation could result in a denied or terminated claim.
Your Doctor May Favor The Insurance Company
Your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance provider may try to steer you into being treated by a doctor with a reputation for favoring employers. In fact, you only have to see one of your employer’s preferred doctors for your initial evaluation. After that, you have the right to seek treatment from a doctor of your choosing.
The doctors favored by employers may be more likely to:
- Refuse to write disability letters for their patients
- Clear injured workers for returning to work
- Recommend less expensive treatment
We Will Help You To Address Medical Bills
When your employer’s insurance company refuses to pay your medical bills, you may quickly accumulate medical debt. Addressing this debt can be difficult to do on your own. At Torrisi & Torissi, P.C., we will step in and fight the claim denial or termination to get your bills paid. We can also work with providers to see if they will halt collection efforts until your case is over.
